    I don't want to be pretentious or obnoxious so let me know if I am.
    I enjoy sharing my projects. A lot of piecers, like I used to be, don't understand the differences in top quilting. My best friend doesn't understand but then, she doesn't quilt either.
    Here is my simple explanation:
    EDGE TO EDGE PANTOGRAPH
    Pantograph design is an all-over pattern applied by hand guiding the machine from side to side, following a pre-printed design. Many designs undulate and interlock and will not look like "rows" on the finished quilt. These designs are good choices for busy quilts that need something attractive and unobtrusive to hold them together.

    ALL-OVER FREEHAND
    All-over freehand is exactly that. The design is applied freehand over the entire quilt, and does not depend on the underlying piecing.

    CUSTOM
    Custom work is based on the underlying piecing, usually with separate block and border treatment.

    With all that said, I'm posting my "freehand" (no marking at all) practice quilt. I made it 60" x 80" so I'd have something I wanted for laying on the couch. I don't like to waste my practice fabrics. I did bind it with scraps. I butted the ends of the scraps together every 24" so there is just a little color in this darned thing. Let me know if you think I shouldn't post these here, SERIOUSLY!

    I like seeing everyone's work, so I'm glad you posted the pictures. You're very talented. Was the McTavishing difficult to do?

    Is this the part where we say, "We knew her when..."?

    This type of McTavishing is simple and goes very quickly.

    practice? so what what do you think your "for real" work is? This is absolutely awesome!!!!

    Have you had lessons? Where do you go to get them? What machine/frame set up do you have? What made you decide on this particular setup?

    Just wondering- I someday (sighing wistfully) would love to have a longarm- just for myself, not as a business.

    The photos are wonderful! Wow! I can appreciate not wasting your practice! But if you ever want to get rid of that, I would be proud to show it off for you! You are very accomplished. :lol:
    I am not familiar with McTavishing. What is it? :?:
